* Any resident of [[SchoolForScheming Wammy's House]] in ''Manga/DeathNote'' is an orphan. It is never stated how any of them BECAME orphans. [[note]] It's also possible that they aren't ''actually'' orphans, but rather ''[[FridgeHorror kidnapping victims]]'', given that Wammy's seems to exist only to find a new successor to L. This, however, is not confirmed. [[/note]]

* Shun Ukiya of ''GateKeepers'' harbors more than a little resentment with his father for dying some years before the start of the series, and in turn [[spoiler:his daughter Ayane similarly resents Shun for his heroic sacrifice several years before the opening of the sequel series ''Anime/GateKeepers21'']].

** Shikamaru's luck seems to have probably spread to his teammates. Both Chouji's and Ino's fathers are alive and shown, while in the anime, Choji's mother is briefly shown in Episode 82 of Shippuden, and Ino is shown talking to her off-screen mother in Episode 53 of Part 1.

** Even the bad guys are not spared. Sasori's first two puppets were made in the image of his parents, who died when he was very young. This extends to the series's original BigBad, Orochimaru, whose parents died when he was fairly young; [[spoiler:[[TheDragon Pain]]/Nagato and Konan]], whose parents were killed in the 2nd Shinobi World War; Kimimaro, whose father kept him in a cage for most of his life before getting himself and the rest of his clan (barring Kimimaro) killed during their war against the Hidden Mist Village; and Haku, whose father killed his mother and tried to do the same to Haku, who killed him in self-defense.

* Very consciously [[AvertedTrope averted]] in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. While a good number of the characters had lost their natural parents [[ArtificialHuman or never had parents in the first place]], practically all of them are adopted into families that care for them deeply and raise them in a loving environment. Not surprising considering how the series stresses the importance of family.

*** There is a possible justification for that. [[spoiler: Given the fact that Gil chose her as a sacrifice because she didn't have anyone that would mourn her loss, it's very likely that the authorities were paid to look the other way.]]

* In ''Manga{{Claymore}}'''s first episode, it is revealed that Raki's parents were eaten by a Youma possessing his brother's body. As for Clare, what exactly happened to her parents is unsure, but considering she was a Youma's [[{{Squick}} toy]] for a while, it would be safe to assume her parents were eaten as well. Priscilla's dad, like Raki's brother, was possessed by a Youma who ate her mother and elder brother.

** Also, ''everyone'' in ''SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas''. Justified since it's set in the 18th century Europe.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' sure loves this trope. In fact, the only character whose parents are both alive ''and'' [[InvisibleParents shown]] is Shikamaru.
